A taste of the Dolomites
Whether it’s morning, afternoon or evening, there’s always something boiling in the kitchen of the Averau Mountain Hut with Matteo, Sandrone and kitchen brigade at the stove.
The delicate “Cappelli d’Alpino”, the “Cialsons” and the aromatic pheasant and broccoli timbale are some of the delights created by the encounter of Sandrone’s Ampezzo tradition with Paola’s tradition of the Friuli region. A meeting that continues to warm our hearts and, now more than ever, wants to be valued and handed down.
The authenticity of the typical dishes cooked with attention and care could only find the perfect match with the wine list selected by Matteo, our house sommelier.
